Nellcote Restaurant Review

: Inspired by the French mansion where the Rolling Stones famously recorded "Exile on Main Street," Nellcôte manages to transport you to an era of glamour since forgotten. Chandeliers, padded booths and chairs, a two-tiered dining room and an unforgettable bathroom all add to the charm. Amid the swank surroundings, enjoy executive chef Anthony DiRienzo’s inventive pizzas (some with house-made fennel sausage, others with a sunny side up organic egg) and pastas (tagliatelle bolognese). Sweet endings might include mascarpone cheesecake or a creamy chocolate parfait. The cocktails are aptly named for Stones songs. "Mother's Little Helper" is more than a great tune; here, it's Herradura Reposado Tequila, fresh-squeezed grapefruit, Pamplemousse Rose, ginger and lime.
